HIKARU ICHIJO LIVE ACTION WIP

Recommended Posts

Hey Y'all, I got really exited at the thought of a macross/robotech live action movie, so I decided to start making some concept art of my own. This is a "live action" version of rick hunter. Its in the works, but here is the process.

Dude! That is scary good! Love what you've done with his uniform, too.

Not bad at all. I like the uniform interpretation and the direction you're going to recreate a more "realistic" analogue for Hikaru's crazy hair in the animation :)

Er...just to let you know. If the current movie being discussed comes about (And that I could debate about)...there's probably not going to be any macross in the movies considering the people producing it don't have the rights to produce original macross footage. They'll get sued pretty quickly...

That aside, your picture of Hikaru is pretty cool. Is the fact he kinda reminds me of Tobey Maguire a coincidence? Haha

So if this movie were to happen what do you think we would get ? So they basically can show the old series but not produce any new content? Without getting too in depth , would you be able to give me an idea of what range of freedom they have to the rights they have ? Or point me to a source that explains it? Thanks for the comment!

Thanks for the comments guys , no coincidence lol that's good ol Toby's face . I just uber excited at the thought of a film coming out, so I did it as if it was for a film . I don't have many concerns about legality, since it's just fun. I'm gonna finish this and do a few more of valks in action to float my boat. I'll post the finished one soon. Cheers

Never mind, I just read a bunch of comments on the article . So basically this project is primed for a re-design make over. Not gonna lie , I'd rather see a well done true rendition of macross, but I'd be ok and would still watch a robotech inspired sci fi transforming robot movie.

If this movie were to happen I think we'd either get all original mech, or mech from the OTHER two shows. Probably nothing Macross sadly.

You said you already read it, but here's thread that leads to a few more links

Oh yeah - anything involving Harmony Gold is going to Ditch Macross completely. They've been trying to steal the franchise from the beginning. They don't want anything to do with Macross so they can sever the ties and not get sued over distribution anymore. Frankly, I don't understand why they didn't just buy the entire Mospeada franchise and be done with it.

It sounds like you had some colliding thoughts going on here.

Indeed.

I was at work and any thought of Harmony Gold drives me around the bend and I can't think straight.

I don't believe that the new film will have anything to do with Macross - and maybe not even transformable mecha. Their newest incarnation of Robotech essentially is Mospeada based. At best - it will be a Mospeada movie. If they don't show any Macross related material, (and they may be legally bound not to), then Mospeada seems a likely alternative.

There are many possibilities for the movie, (even Southern Cross - which lends itself the most to be an original work and they can easily wimp-out and not have transformable mecha), but I think Macross is not one of them. This being the Hollywood horsecrap factory, I would be astounded if we got anything closely resembling transforming robots - let alone anything else.

But the artwork in this thread is wonderful.
